Release Evolution: The New Best Practices for Microsoft Dynamics CRM Release Management

The last 12 to 18 months have seen a rapid evolution of the best practices and toolsets for releasing Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions, supporting data, and other elements like bug fixes. These new tools and best practices have changed the game in release management for Dynamics CRM, allowing teams to exercise better control over releases and improve the traceability and accountability of the release process.

Ivan Kurtev, CRM Solution Architect at HP Enterprise Services, reviews of how these best practices and tools allow teams to implement robust release processes for a range of Microsoft Dynamics CRM environments. This session focuses on the two key activities in a Release:

  • Build - the creation of CRM solutions from source code and Microsoft Dynamics CRM metadata.
  • Deployment - the import of Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions, data, and other key elements in downstream environment and validation of the release.
